A man in Washington was fed up with people stealing packages from his front porch so he rigged a package to teach the would-be thieves a lesson.

A woman is seen in this video approaching the man's porch and lifting a package. However, this was no package, it was a decoy.

The box was wired and once lifted it triggered a blank shotgun shell, thus letting out a sound like someone was shooting.

While it may not seem loud here, the man who rigged this says that it is VERY loud and it sounds like someone is shooting.

Let's hope this person learned a lesson and never attempts to steal again. We remind you, if you're going to have packages delivered to you, it may be a good idea to have your package shipped to your place of employment.
